La Ponte-Ecomuséu. A link between innovation and community involvement

Authors:

Abstract and Figures

The ecomuseum of Santo Adriano arises as a pragmatic response to the needs and desires of a group of young and active people living in a depopulated and depressed rural area in Asturias. This structure enalbes to create a museological project where different social actors (either public or private) converge because they share similar interests. The object of our initiative is to create a participatory framework for heritage and museum management, with democratic relations among community members.

2016 Milan Cooperation Charter “Ecomuseums and cultural landscape”
(*) Odalice Miranda Priosti, founder and Coordinator of the Ecomuseu Comunitário de Santa
Cruz (Rio de Janeiro), passed away on Christmas Day, 2017.
She was a contributor to the debates of the Forum of Ecomuseums and Community Museums, in
Milan during the 24th ICOM General Conference. Her text is reproduced in this book.
We want to pay her a well-deserved tribute, for her pioneering role in the promotion and experimenta-
tion of ecomuseology in the last thirty years, not only in Brazil, but also internationally. She has
visited ecomuseums and colleagues in Europe and America and she has organized, with great vi-
sion and wisdom, two international encounters of ecomuseums and community museums, in her
own Ecomuseum, in 2000 and 2004.
We can say that she has thus paved the way to the success of the Milan Forum.

What happens when you are asked to run a learning programme for young people on a community archaeology project, at the very last minute and with minimal resources? This paper is an overview and critical review of the programme that we and some of our students coordinated for a group of local children in the village of Villanueva de Santo Adriano, Asturias, Spain. It describes the planning and delivery of the five-day programme of activities, some of them standard fare for archaeological education and others improvised or designed for this specific site and excavation project. The paper looks at the feedback and aftermath of the project, including a shocking episode of vandalism, and reflects on the lessons and outcomes of the project.
